About Payne Junior High Student Council...
Position: Student Leadership
Phone: (480) 224-2431
Welcome, Panther Nation! Student Council is a class and governing body on campus made up of 7th and 8th grade students.
My Education and Professional Background
Student council is composed of leaders selected by the student body of Payne, academic teams (cohorts), and appointed by campus leadership. Mr. d'Entremont has been our sponsor since the 2018-2019 school year.
Due to our diverse student leaders, we have been recognized as a Master Council since the 2017-2018 school year through the AAJHSC. Our program is a model for civic engagement within CUSD due to the facilitation of district programs such as Participatory Budgeting. Due to strong initiative, our projects come in ahead of schedule and implement innovative measures. Our student leaders recognize inefficiencies, take risks, are solution-driven, and collaborate with campus leadership to enhance student "campus life" on a regular basis. As a result, we see students step into leadership roles in our feeder high schools and with their first employers. Our task together as a group, school, and community, is to continue our legacy for this academic year.
My Educational Philosophy
We are committed to representing the student body of Payne through connections and use of expertise. Our program enhances the day-to-day student life by evaluating consistent feedback through student correspondence, surveys, observations, and polls. Our student leaders apply their leadership abilities to bring resolution, growth, and positive experiences to all students while at the middle school level.
